I have a <textarea> when submitted creates a new form with the textarea

I don't get it.

There is nothing in my code that is stripping the \n?

<input name="DPRnarration" type="text" hidden form="DPRform" value="<?php
echo stripslashes($_POST["**DPRnarration"]);?>">

Do I need to put it in another textarea and declare it hidden?

An input with type=text is used for single lines, so yes, newlines get
Either use a textarea with style="display: none", or store the data in a
session instead.

Actually - an <input type=text> may be intended for single lines, but my test shows that it does not drop the \ all by itself.

And actually, the poster's question is very difficult to understand, simply because I do believe he doesn't know anything about html or php. Probably building something from examples he has seen.

1 - he doesn't show a <textarea> tag in his examples
2 - his sample of his code is such a small fragment we can't tell WHAT he is doing.

Most likely the problem is his use of stripslashes in that last code line he provided. I wonder if he knows what that does?
